On Set and Smiling for the Camera

February 11, 2017 By

Today was a huge victory for me. I finally found the courage and the strength to tell my Invisible Illness story. So many other brave people have shared their stories for our documentary, that it was finally my turn to take the chair (or ladder, as the case may be).

I posted a sneak peek of my interview on Instagram and Facebook. And I grabbed a few behind-the-scenes shots too. When you actually get dressed, do your hair and makeup in a day, a girl’s gotta take advantage of it!

What part of my story are you most interested in? I’d love to know, in case we do more pick up shots (which I’m sure we will).

Topics we covered:

  • Life with an invisible illness
  • Diagnosis
  • Identity loss
  • Advocating for yourself
  • Asking better questions
  • Medical mishaps and mistakes
